How many of you have the following spec :
"This application should keep scheduled flight information for a number of airlines and routes,and it should provide a convenient way to search for and book flights that might suit customer's requirements"
My concern is this sounds like I have to implement updating and adding records . Anyone else have the same spec and came to the same conclusion ?

I have the same specification. I thought I only need to modify the record if seats of the flight are booked. It appears to me we do not need to add records.
Please comment more.

Yeah, I don't see where this calls for adding a record? I have the same thing in my spec. You definately need to be able to update a record (when somebody books). But you don't need to implement adding a record. However, keep in mind that you do need to test it...if your project is the same as mine, you will need to test the add to make sure that another change you needed to make actually works.
With Respect,

Thanks for the reply . It seems no one is concerned about the adding part then . It just seems to me that "should keep scheduled flight information" implies that "keep" means maintain ,update . Otherwise if you analyse the whole quote :
"This application should keep scheduled flight information for a number of airlines and routes,and it should provide a convenient way to search for and book flights that might suit customer's requirements"
It has THREE requirements . 1. search 2. book AND 3. keep scheduled info .
So the question is , what does "keep" mean ?

The assignment states: "it should provide a convenient way to search for and book flights that might suit customer's requirements"
However, it stated also that the findCriteria(String dd) can be as simple as including only "origin" and "destination".
It appears that we do not need to have other attributes for search records.
Please comment.

It's hard to say ruilin . The rest of the spec lists what MUST be in your assignment , not what could be .
Anyway at this point I think I'm not going to work on this anymore . I'll let you know if I pass though .
